Hi PJ,

I have had some patients that had very nice results on their arms, while others did not respond well. I am not able to predict who will respond and who will not.

If you are considering the treatment, have your physician treat a test spot. You will need the test spot treated about 3 to 4 times separated by about 2 to 3 weeks to determine whether you like the effect.

Be well and please let us know how it goes.
